It's only been on for one episode, but 666 Park Avenue might already be in hot water -- appropriate, given the show is about residents of an apartment building who sell their souls to Satan. Ratings for the premiere episode were mediocre at best and were even less than Pan Am earned for the network in that same time slot last year. Since Pan Am didn't even last a full season, that's not good news. Even worse, ABC hasn't been patient with low-rated genre shows of late, with The River, The Gates, Happy Town and Eastwick all getting the axe after just a few episodes.
We'll see how long it takes the network to make a decision on this one, but they have another suspense show waiting in the wings as a mid-season replacement: Zero Hour with Anthony Edwards (which likewise doesn't stand much of a chance, with ABC's track record). Anyway, enjoy the characters while they last, and if you're a fan of the show (which honestly I'm not yet, though I hope it gets a shot), get everyone you know to watch it.
